Maybe it should be! Finding humor in everyday things is a gift. Don’t you love it when you are around someone whose dry wit seems to make your immediate problems disappear, at least for the short term? Our very serious world can be depressing and overwhelming, which is why I like to get my negative news from Stephen Colbert and my positive news from Sunday Morning on CBS.
So, you are thinking of acquiring a partner in your business. Maybe you want a partner to spread the workload or liability. You could have differing areas of expertise and want to become a “one-stop shop.” Or maybe you’re looking for someone to take over when you retire.
Either way, think before you get “engaged” and sign those final papers! As Lamar Curtis of IAG put it, “a partnership is like a marriage without the good parts.” Before moving forward, consider these suggestions.
